Wrong-way driver in Anaheim could face drunk-driving charges, authorities say
A 21-year-old Fullerton woman driving the wrong way on the 91 Freeway in Anaheim will likely face felony drunk-driving charges after a head-on collision this morning that killed two people, authorities said.
Jessica Shekell was driving a pickup truck west on the eastbound 91 Freeway near the 55 Freeway about 3 a.m. when she collided with a Chevy Silverado, said California Highway Patrol Officer Denise Quesada.
The two women and two girls in the Silverado were not wearing seat belts, Quesada said.
Sally Miguel, 44, and Patricia Miguel, 30, died from their injuries. Their nieces in the back seat -- Sara Miguel, 11, and Mary Miguel, 15 -- remained in the hospital. Sara was in serious condition, and Mary was listed in moderate condition, Quesada said. All were from San Bernardino.
Shekell, who could face additional charges, also was hospitalized with “very serious” injuries, Quesada said.
